A World Without Rape Is Possible

On 8th March 2015, as part of Cambridge's WOW Festival and in celebration of International Women's Day, our member organisation Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre (CRCC) called on men and boys to challenge 'rape culture' and take action in ending sexual violence against women and girls everywhere with this campaign video.

Number of Sexual Offences at Highest in a Decade

On 15th October 2015, Rape Crisis England & Wales responded to the news that recorded sexual offences in England and Wales had risen by 41%. Our spokesperson makes the point that, while these figures our striking, they're matched by unprecedented levels of demand for specialist Rape Crisis services in recent years. 

#ConsentIs

In September 2015, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) launched a social media campaign to get people talking about consent to sex within the context of sexual assault and rape.

 

The CPS worked in partnership with Rape Crisis, End Violence Against Women Coalition, Survivors Manchester, White Ribbon Campaign and the National Union of Students.

Rape is Rape In Any Language 

'Rape is Rape' joint project between CRASAC and Coventry City Council which aims to speak to a broad audience, raising awareness that rape and sexual violence are never the victims fault. It delivers the key messages that both dispel the myths and stereotypes around rape and sexual violence in our community and let people know that support is here if they want it.

The word rape is often associated with a violent assault by a stranger. Although this does happen, the majority of rape and sexual assault happens where two people know and trust each other, they could be friends, partners, family members or know each other from school, college or work.
